"Upgrading"graphics card!

  [DELETED] 15:27 25 Oct 2003

I own a 5 yr old system running p2 350 cpu.
The system is fine,but I am fitting some new components. A new pci usb card went in, broadband connection, bios flash upgrade, all working A1.
I then purchased a 2nd hand 64meg inno 3d/savage2000 graphics card which the vendor assured me was ok. I looked to uninstall the drivers for the intel740 win 9x card 9 (agp), but found no uninstall utility on the add/rem programs! Checking in the system files for the drivers was a win\sys\ gfxdrv.drv, path to gfx.vxd,path to vmm32.vxd.removed these to floppy. Fitted new card,the system would not boot past the start up screen,(cant remember what it said was missing).Restored the system using a restore disc,but the graphics were in lowest res:
Inserted the driver cd that was supplied with the card and recieved a message that there was no nvidia chipset found on the system. When the system was rebooted a blue flash screen with the card info:is displayed,then the win os comes to life in the low res:( me os).Refitted the old agp card and all is back to normal. Any suggestions? Could the card have been damaged in the post?
